Polish Heritage Day

When: Sun., July 8, 12-4 p.m. 2018

UTSA's Institute of Texan Cultures features members of the local Polish community sharing their heritage and traditions. The Polish community has been hard at work on a new Polish Heritage Center in Panna Maria and will deliver updates on its status, hands-on crafts, and stories from the “Old Polish Quarter,” the neighborhood razed to build HemisFair. The Polish Mazurka Dancers, led by 47-year Texas Folklife Festival veteran Genny Kosub Kraus, will perform and teach their popular dances.
